Not a Christian country...

The last few days have seen the British parliament make a number of distressing moral choices and Christians are upset, quite rightly. See Matt Hosier's view in the opening paragraph of this post. Our notion of 'rights' are worrying at best and dangerous at worst. The consequences will be far reaching and hard to predict.

Not that I've thought Britain has been (or ever was) a Christian country run on approximately Christian values, but it certainly isn't now in the area of medical and reproductive ethics. It's another step away. So the question is, that now more than ever the Christian community must become distinctive by the utterly different quality of life we have. Marriages lasting longer, adopting more children, aborting less, sharing more, giving more - I hope society will hunger for these things. God have mercy on us if they don't.

Adoption is one of those things we've not thought much about in the UK church methinks. Dan Cruver has some really helpful stuff on this question.
